Current River Floating & Tubing Options
Even if you are passing through the Van Buren area, come take a relaxing tube trip - floating the crystal clear Current River. We provide different tube choices and a variety of tube trips to select from:
Black inner-tubes in which you sit directly in the water.
Adds a canvas cover for that "Cadillac" level of comfort! In addition to protecting you from the heat of the tube itself, the canvas cover supports your body, lifting you further out of the water.
WE HAVE 2 NEW TYPES OF TUBES! Enjoy a float trip with our NEW Vinyl Lazy Boy Tube that includes a backrest and cup holder and/or take a TubeTracker out!
Below are our most popular float trips both to and from Big Spring RV Camp (BSRVC). All floats are guided by your own pace and there's never a rush to finish. YES, we do rent and haul tubes to customers that are not staying at Big Spring RV Camp. Come take a float trip with us!
Trip #1 - Waymeyer to BSRVC
Trip #2 - Raft Yard to BSRVC
Trip #3 - BSRVC to Big Spring
Trip #4 - Option Float: Raftyard to Big Spring Landing #1
is about the same float in river miles. It provides the option to stop by BSRVC for a break, picnic lunch, or a chance for any of those in your group who have had enough floating for the day to call it quits.
Cooler tubes are available for $6.00/each for any float option.
Van Buren is located on the crystal clear Current River in the heart of Missouri's scenic Ozarks. Even in late summer there is plenty of water flowing along this section of Current River. No need to worry about dragging or walking unless you take the wrong split in the river.
Within the section of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways above Big Spring Landing #1, the National Park Service prohibits the use of boats with large outboard or inboard motors.
We own and operate our own tube trip business out of Big Spring RV Camp. As a contracted Concessioner of the National Park Service, we are authorized to provide tube rental and shuttle services within the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, a unit of the National Park Service.
